We began to work together in 2007 and created the atelier Blain-Dixneuf. We are two designers, Grégory Blain and Hervé Dixneuf, Graduates from the ESAD of Saint-Etienne.
Our projects come from many influences, always in pursuit of harmony between form and function. We don’t realy work in any defined way, projects appear to us through the lack of something, the desire to test a material, exploring new uses, revisiting objects or drawing them in another way. Our objects leave out the superfluous, finding solutions in détail, the objective is to to stay simple and in the right shape. Our duet allows us to confront our points of view and learn to exchange. We orientate our reflections in a pragmatic way to create singular objects, which are useful and surprising.
We were finalist of « bourse Agora » in 2007. In 2008, we won the « Concours révélateur de talents » Cinna, in the decoration objects category with « La niche ». Selected for the Design Parade festival, at Villa Noailles in 2009.
Today we continue our activity in developping new projects for brands, company’s and design editors like Cinna-Ligne Roset, Muuto, Bernard Chauveau, Manganèse Editions, CIAV Meisenthal, Cristallerie Saint-Louis,…
